There is nothing more evident than the changes that come along with being a mom. Physical and emotional transformations are inevitable once you become a mom. Being mindless of your own needs and wants is the prerequisite so you can fully focus on the family’s needs. No more idle time for reading novels. No more lounging around for the TV series. No more long hours in the shower. Years back you wouldn’t be caught dead with an unkempt hair. Now, you cannot even remember the last time you used a comb. But lo and behold, being beautiful while doing mommy duties is actually easy when you keep these in mind:
- Practice time management. This has been the secret key to almost everything – from corporate to household successes. This is easier said than done though. Planning activities ahead and writing it down with details are equally important in time management. And who else knows all the activities of the household but you? The mom makes the best planner. If you must, try different schedules to see what works best for you. Do trial and error. Following the most efficient schedule will leave little to no room for stress – and you being stress-free reflects both inward and outward!
- Be mindful of what you eat. No this is not about strict calorie counting. This has something to do with your everyday goal to make your child eat. Sometimes, even after preparing the most enticing meal for your child, there will still be leftovers. And because you do not want food to go to waste, the next logical thing you do is eat the remaining food in your child’s plate.
You consume leftover foods without actually minding it. Minute later, you totally forget about what you just ate as you have your regular meal. However when you keep on doing this, you also keep on increasing your calorie intake. Be conscious of what you eat if your idea of being beautiful is going back to shape. Eat healthy and be mindful of the foods that you put to your mouth and down your stomach eventually!
- Moisturize. Body lotion, face powder, lip creams are a must. Before starting your busy day of being a mom, put on these essentials. Including these in your routine will keep your skin glowing and moisturized. As you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, you will be pleased with your blooming appearance. Your smooth, flawless skin and the tinted cheeks and lips will give you more inspiration as you beautifully face the tasks ahead!
- Feel good. Beauty starts from within. Living everyday with happiness and contentment will give you a positive outlook of things. When the mind conceives good things, it will be evident in your outward appearance. Be more thankful and complain less. Feeling good is the most important thing to remember when you want to look good. Finding fulfilment in what you do requires the least effort in making yourself look beautiful.
Being a mom must make you more confident as a person. After all, being a mom alone makes you more beautiful than you already are!
